Mom's Banana Bread

Don't we all have that one recipe that reminds us of our mom!? For me it is this banana bread! Its one of those recipes that no matter who else makes it, it never tastes as good as when your mom makes it!

Even the smell reminds me of her! There is nothing I love more then walking into my parents house and smelling fresh baked banana. It is the perfect balance of sweet and buttery. Every bite is like a hug for your mouth.

Mom's Banana Bread -

1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter Softened
2 Eggs
1 1/2 Cup Mashed Ripe Bananas (About 2 Large Bananas)
1/3 Cup Water
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1 2/3 Cup Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Chopped Nuts (Optional- Mom always used walnuts)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom of a loaf pan (I always use butter... because duh!). Mix sugar and butter in a large bowl. Add eggs until blended. Add bananas, water, and vanilla. Beat for 30 seconds. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into the baking dish. Bake for about 55-60 min or until you can insert a toothpick in the middle and it comes out clean.
